More Information

If you would like to talk to someone now, please click the 'need support' box on the left of the screen to find a number you can call.  Otherwise, keep reading to find out who to talk to about a mental health or addiction issue or look through the list of online information, tools, resources and advice.

There are services in communities throughout New Zealand that provide specific types of support (many of them are listed here https://www.platform.org.nz/organisations). If you want to speak to someone about accessing support, you can contact one of those services in your community, speak to your GP, talk to your school counsellor, contact your workplace EAP provider, or contact your local district health board (DHB) mental health or addictions team. The DHB mental health teams can be found here http://www.hdc.org.nz/about-us/mental-health-and-addictions/help-and-support/getting-help.
